The transition to winter time will take place at the end of October.

The transition to winter time will take place at the end of October. TRUE. The transition to winter time will take place on the night of Saturday 26 to Sunday, October 27, 2019. It will take 60 minutes to the legal time. At 3 o’clock in the morning, it will be 2 o’clock again. We will “win” one hour of sleep. We will lose an hour of light at the end of the day. For those who hesitate to give their watch, there is a very simple way to know how to turn the needles. As winter time changes to October, it’s time to go back!

Those who would prefer to keep the standard time, that is, the winter time, could change one last time in October of that year.

FALSE

The European Commission proposed to put an end to seasonal time changes as early as 2019. But the project has been delayed. The European Parliament has set 2021 as a new horizon.

TRUE

In the adopted text, MEPs furthermore call on the EU countries to coordinate before making any changes. Thus, the French expressed themselves largely in favor of the summer time, with 59% of the votes, as well as Portugal, Cyprus or Poland. But Finland, Denmark and the Netherlands are in favor of winter time. Belgium, it has not decided yet.
